Biography

For some, the road to acting was paved from childhood - a kind of predetermined path; for others, it was more of a winding road, ending up unexpectedly in front of a camera. Hill Harper fell into the profession after pursuing a Renaissance-man existence, with a distinguished education and a string of outside accomplishments to show for himself. With his law school background, Harper could have succeeded in whatever he had applied himself to, but acting wound up being the path he ultimately chose. He brought an earnest intellect and intensity to his roles, coupled with a distinct appeal to the opposite sex - to the point where he was named one of People magazine's "Sexiest Men Alive." Much of his acclaim came from the strength of his performance as Dr. Sheldon Hawkes on the popular procedural spin-off, "CSI: NY" (CBS, 2004- ).
